Serim Research Corporation


Serim Research Corporation is an independent research, development and manufacturing company that specializes in innovative dry reagent test strip technology used in the Discern® HME kits. Serim test strips provide the advantages of being able to analyze samples at the point-of-use using a simple procedure that can be performed with little training, no special equipment and avoids the inconvenience of storing, handling, and mixing hazardous liquid reagents. Serim’s new Discern® HME Detection Kit identifies and distinguishes compounds used in HMEs, such as nitrate-based fertilizers and peroxide, chlorate and perchlorate compounds. The point-of-use test is easy-to-use, light weight, cost-effective, non-hazardous and yields accurate results rapidly. In business since 1988, our fully integrated Research & Development/Manufacturing Center is a 32,630-square-foot, FDA-registered facility certified to ISO 9001 and 13485.

Benefits of the kit are:

Affordable – Low purchase price and maintenance free.

Comprehensive – The only kit of its type to offer such an extensive range of explosive categories detected at trace level.

Single use – 100% recyclable. Paper based test format. Individually sealed to avoid cross contamination.

Compact – Ultra light weight paper card. Foldable, easy to store individually or in bulk.

No supplementary equipment required – The kits do not require supplementary equipment such as heaters, battery operated electronic gadgets or burners.

Easy to use – Simple test procedure, which requires minimal training.
